BANGKOK -- Thai businesses are planning to revitalize the well-known eastern resort city of Pattaya by tapping into the country's Eastern Economic Corridor special economic zone, with the area expected to undergo a massive improvement in infrastructure.

The EEC is centered around the development of advanced technology in industries such as aviation and automation. Investment funds totaling more than 1.5 trillion baht ($45 billion) are to flow into infrastructure projects -- from airports and deep-sea ports to high-speed railways and roads -- dramatically improving the area's connectivity.
